Glitter n Sparkle DT - Add a Sentiment

Hello, everyone.  A warm welcome to my newest followers - very nice to have you join me.  Today it's time for a new challenge over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  This week we want you to Add a Sentiment.  You all know how much I love kitties - I never tire of making kitty cards, and here's another one for you.  I made this as a birthday card - I interpret Happy Purr-Day as Happy Birthday - what do you think?  This adorable image is from Pattie's Creations called Allie in Fishbowl by artist Pattie Gomez.   I wonder what my kitties would do if I had a fishbowl like this LOL.  I think they would be very curious, just like this kitty is.  A special thank-you to my friend Marion for the kitten die-cuts!

Here are all the other supplies I used to make my card:
  • Colouring medium:  Prismacolor pencils
  • Dies:  Die-Namics Sunflower, Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents, Poppy Stamps Baby Kittens (thank you for the kittens, Marion!)
  • Stamps: Penny Black Nine Lives Sentiment, Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Brilliance Gamma Green
  • Patterned paper:  Walmart
  • Marker:  Staedtler (for doodling faux stitching)
  • Accents:  Pawprint Charm, Pearls (from my stash)
  • Twine:  American Crafts
  • Sketch:  Papertake Weekly Sketch #80 (see below)
Papertake Weekly Sketch #80

Happy purr-day is the perfect sentiment for this card - says it all, doesn't it? And it could be used for birthday or just a "thinking of you today" style card! Fabulous! Love the pretty details and all the intricate coloring, too, KT! Your designer papers really do look like wall paper to give your card that homey feel, don't they? Darling! hugs, de

Princess Judy Palmer said...

What a pretty and happy card! I love all the colors and the punch art flowers and greenery. If I had a fish bowl it would be on the floor overturned in no time. We do have a large fish tank that can't be knocked asunder. The fish splash at feeding time and the cats give them dirty looks.
